re: Poker & Fear on heads-up
Well, I never got to the heads up in a tournament, only in the SNG.
As in SNG we often arrived at the FT, we don't feel any nervousness. Now in a major tournament for sure I would feel a little nervous too, not only in the heads up as throughout the final table.
I think this would occur by inexperience. At the moment when FT's, HU's and achievements are happening more often, the player should feel more comfortable in this kind of situation and nervousness must pass.
